Pappano’s opening London season in 2012 featured him conducting Elgar for the first time with, according to the critics, a ‘searing’ account of Symphony No.1. As part of his preparation of the score, he listened to Elgar’s own 1930 recording.
The review in 2012 went on to say: ‘Like many conductors from outside English tradition, Pappano has much to bring to Elgar … His surging, striving account caught all the nervous energy of this elegiac work … Now he should take the symphony, which like many Elgar works owes inspiration to Italy and was partly composed in Rome, to his own orchestra there.’ This has now happened!
Antonio Pappano, who studied piano and conducting, first attracted the attention of Daniel Barenboim, becoming his assistant at the Bayreuth Festival. After working in Barcelona and Frankfurt, he made his debut at Den Norske Opera in Oslo in 1987, becoming music director there in 1990. From 1992 to 2002 Pappano was music director of La Monnaie, the Belgian Royal Opera House. In 2002, he was named music director of the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, London, his current contract there running to 2017. Pappano has also been principal guest conductor of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra and in 2005 became music director of the Orchestra dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia. Pappano was knighted in 2012 and was also made a Knight Grand Cross of Italy’s Order of Merit.
